Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 166057
CAN-2005-2470 acroread buffer overflow
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:19 EST
Adobe alerted us to a buffer overflow in acroread
Details: The identified vulnerability is a buffer overflow within a core
application plug-in which is part of Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader. If
a malicious file were opened it could trigger a buffer overflow as the
file is being loaded into Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader. A buffer
overflow can cause the application to crash and increase the risk of
malicious code execution.
This issue should also affect RHEL3
Has Adobe posted updated binaries to their site that we can pull from?
None yet, I'm bugging dff about them.
I've filed errata RHSA-2005:750 for this issue.
Lifting embargo, this is now public.
